I made it through the week. That is about all that can be said for last week. I averaged over 11 hours at work each day, with all of those hours being spent in meetings. I somehow managed to remain caught up on both work and work e-mail, even though I do not have a work laptop and barely sat at my desk the entire week. Of course, it did help that all those who give me work were all sitting in the same meetings with me. Since this is a yearly event, I can now rest for a few weeks. Then again, my next exam is on February 13th, and I really have not started studying in earnest, so rest will have to wait.
Because I had absolutely no energy to do anything else, I did manage to finish one book this week, Be the Change: How Meditation Can Transform You and the World by Ed and Deb Shapiro. It is going to be a difficult book review to write because the topic does not necessarily appeal to the masses. I hope to write the review this afternoon and post it later in the week, but you know what they say about the best-laid plans!
I have absolutely no plans for this week. I am hoping my girlfriend gives birth (her due date was this past Wednesday) so that I can visit her and hold a newborn. I am still working on her baby shower gift, a cross-stitched picture of Winnie the Pooh, so that should be keeping me busy for the next
year month week. I am dreadfully behind on my book club selection, Little Dorrit by Charles Dickens, so I do want to get caught up on that. And I would like to finish the other non-fiction self-help book I have to review, The Mayo Clinic Diet. I am ready for some fiction again.
That is about it from here. Normally, I love being busy, but these days, I do question why I attempt to accomplish so much. I think I need another vacation.
What about you? Anything fun planned for this week? Any particular book you are eagerly anticipating starting or finishing?
